Turning the BEC-BCS Crossover into a Phase Transition

The Bose-Einstein Condensate (BEC) to Bardeen-Cooper-Schrieffer (BCS) transition is a paradigm of a thermodynamic crossover; although the BEC and BCS states are very different, they may be connected without any thermodynamic singularity. With the recent development of controllable Feshbach resonances in cold atomic gases, this crossover may be now tunably explored. We suggest that by a small perturbation, the cold atom BEC-BCS crossover may be used to explore a much different set of physics. Specifically, we show that by applying a weak radio frequency perturbation to a two-dimensional cold atomic gas, the BEC-BCS crossover may transmuted into a non-equilibrium phase transition between the usual superfluid state and a supersolid state that spontaneously breaks translational symmetry. This transition would provide an interesting arena to study non-equilibrium phase transitions, the kinetics of first-order quantum phase transitions, the properties of the supersolid as well as illuminating the properties of the underlying BEC-BCS crossover.
